In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
We've included these beaches for you: Waikiki Beach and Sunset Beach Park. Do your shopping at Polynesian Cultural Center and Ala Moana Center. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku), Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach) and Waimea Bay (in Haleiwa). There's still lots to do: admire the majestic nature at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, cruise along Makapu'u Point, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

To find ratings, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Honolulu sightseeing planner .

New York City to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of bus and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from New York City to Honolulu. In May, Honolulu is a bit warmer than New York City - with highs of 84°F and lows of 71°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
